OCTOBER 2020

Due to the fragility and susceptibility of our patients & staff, 

 

our office will remain temporarily closed for in-person patient treatment to limit possible exposure to Covid-19 (novel Coronavirus).

 

The health and safety of our patients, physician & staff (and all surrounding us) is our main priority.

We will continue to monitor the changes in status of the Covid-19 pandemic, and will resume regular office hours, in-person appointments, & procedures when risk factors decrease.

When we re-open and resume regular office operations,

appointment and safety protocol will be strictly adjusted for the health & safety during this health crisis.

Patients must adhere to all new appointment safety guidelines in order to have an appointment.
